What is the Spiritual, a 21st Century Definition

“Spiritual is every reality that a life being can perceive through the 6th sense.”

Tob Williams

The 6th sense is a method of perception which include: instinct, intuition, extrasensory perception (ESP), equilibrioception (sense of balance), proprioception (sense of body position), hunches and subconscious processes.

Since the definition of the 6th sense might not be consensual, spiritual can also be defined as:

“Spiritual is every reality that life being can’t perceive through the five methods of perception, hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste.”

The 5 senses - hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste

The 5 senses – hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste

Methods of perception or senses are the same thing.

Definition of spiritual


Spiritual comes from the word spirit, and spirit comes from the Latin world “spiritus“, which means breath. So spiritual is what gives “breath” to the physical, what makes it alive.

In the human paradigm, we can say the physical is the body, and the spiritual is the mind.

The same way there is no concept of light without darkness, no happiness without sadness, no awake without sleep, no rest without work, no hot without cold, so there isn’t physical without the spiritual. It’s just the way the universe collaborates with the positive and the negative, the yin and the yang, the north and south, etc.

Spiritual and the physical are opposites, just the same way material is the opposite of immaterial.

Science, especially western science has been dealing too much on a Newtonian perspective of things, only dealing with the physical part of it.

But things are changing in the scientific paradigm, so it’s becoming each time more mainstream, namely in quantum science, to deal with the non-physical model of things.

    What we are all experiencing is known as repeated patterns of meaning. I have seen the number 17 repeated daily for approximately two years. My birthday is 3-17 and like many of you, I see this number in absolutely every way imaginable all throughout the day and night and I do not expect it to stop. There is nothing to fear or worry about from this seemingly unusual phenomenon as there are no coincidences or accidents that occur in life, but only meaningful happenings. We are attracting this experience into our fields of consciousness, then, for a reason. Do not despair but be encouraged that you are being shown something of significance in your life. I am quite excited, actually, and have always had a very positive feeling from noticing these patterns. Look upon it, then, as a normal occurrence and simply ask for guidance to understand the meaning it has for your life. My very intuitive gut feeling about this happening is that the collective consciousness of the universe is simply rising at this time in history. We are waking up, becoming aware of our existence. Mankind is becoming enlightened. Enjoy!

      John, I believe you are absolutely correct. I see the numbers 444, when I am about to receive important information or need to be aware of something, also 77 a lot and have not really figured the correct meaning of this just yet. Along with several other numeric sequences.
